In a few weeks time (June) this was

a sight I looked forward to…

 as it meant an income for future years.

Some years, though, it was heart breaking

especially if the weather was nasty…cold

and wet…lambs often died before they stood up.

This was also part of my farming life until the 1983 drought.

After that year it was decreed that sheep had bellies

which were much easier to fill than cattle,

especially in a drought year.

Sheep also did less damage to fences

than hungry, or not hungry, cattle did.

Goodbye cattle.

A variety of windows, both old and new

Looking out to the street through

the inner stain glass windows.

It was through these doors/windows

that a hail storm blew in

with hail stones landing twenty feet

inside these doors.

Views of the Swan River Bank in Perth, Western Australia.

There was a housing complex similar to this which,

we were told, belong to one family only.

Another Swan River scene.

Number 2 Son had the camera this day as we drove

around our second tree plantation.

 Same paddock a couple of weeks ago.

Only this time trees have been harvested and poisoned

in preparation for planting new tube stock.

I nearly took a selfie as our Georgian (USA) born

Plantation Manager acted as chauffeur.

Finally, this photo is tagged as God’s Window

which we visited while in South Africa.

Stunning views as is befitting such a window.
